Currently April

Oh My DOG!  So is it really April First?  I am early happy that I do not have kids today as I have some pretty gnarly kids that would play some serious pranks on me.


If it is the first it means that it it time to link up with the fabulous Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade!  I love her.  She just seems like the type of girl I could get loud with, probably into trouble, and we would be wearing some ridiculous outfit.  Maybe some day.

I am also noticing how many of my blogger friends are in Texas.  Good luck to you this week with your big testing!  Mine is not until the end of April.  I have about 3 weeks.  YUCK no matter how you look at it.

well here we go!  Currently April edition.

Most of these need little extra descriptions. 

Listening : I am loving iTunes Radio lately.  I have been listening to the 50 Top Alternatives.  Does that make me old? Paramore - " Aint it fun" is on now and I love this song. 
Loving :  I started an IG shop.  

You can find it here: LWCsCloset or just search @lwcscloset  I have already had one sale.  I am excited to see some more.  

I am also in LOVE with my new product I made for myself.  It is Guess Who but Math edition.

Wow that picture sucks.  Sorry.  I will try to get a better one once I put the game all together.
I am really excited about that product and I think I might keep it.  I always want to participate in freebies and blog hops but I give everything away anyway.  So I might keep this one as my "prize."  Unless I decide to bite the bullet and start a TPT or TN.  I am still wavering on that one. 

Thinking: I need to go into work today and grade
Wishing: that I did not have to do the above, and my report cards would write themselves.
Needing:  It is so gross outside right now I can not handle it.  I need to get running again now that I am healthy enough (cleared for 5ks! friends.  No 26.2 this year...but I will settle for all the fun 5ks.)  Also, my two running partners: both are super preggos.  Who is going to hold me accountable!!!!  That reminds me I need to get my fitbit up and running again.
Hours:  I forgot to do the last day thing but yea.  I get to work usually about 6am.  Kids start trickling in about 6:50.  School starts at 7:15 and ends at 2:40.  I teach after school (hey 30 bones an hour...sold) so I stay till the afternoon busses leave at 4.  Looooooong Days!  Our last day got pushed out to June 10th....Stupid "COLD" days. 

There you have it.  

What are you currently up to?



  1. Those are long days! I do an after school club several days a week and I am not lying when I say I am glad to be able to leave on time come May! :) Report cards are about my least favorite thing to do. I don't even mind the grading part, just the tediousness of entering all that into the system!


  2. Wow! You have some LONG days! I feel slightly guilty knowing that you're teaching before I even arrive at school!

  3. Oh my, what long days you have! I'm not sure I could do that, but if I lived closer I would be your running partner! Good luck on those report cards.

Creating Ratio Posters

This was a really fun project that I did with my 7th graders when we were working on ratios, Rates and proportions that I never got a chance to post this past year, and I will not be teaching 7th grade again! (sort of sad...but not really.)
To introduce the topic we started with a review of ratios.  Below you will find the worksheet that went along with the project.  You can see this student was using her worksheet to help her think of a topic idea!!  LOVE!

She also was not very careful with her worksheet.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  As you can see the students had to pick a topic, draw or represent (i told them they could use stickers or glue objects to their poster) 20 objects, then on a second sheet of paper complete 10 questions relating to ratios from their poster and reflect.  Here is what this student came up with!

If you have had any questions about using art or projects in a math class here it is, Directly from the mouth (er, hand) of a student.  STUDENTS LOVE VISUAL PROJECTS …

Back To School First Day Activity Idea

Hi there!  I have been slacking on the blogging lately.  When summer started I was upset that I was not going to be teaching summer school, and that I had to drop out of Grad School for a while (Due to some REALLY ridiculous issues at a different school not allowing my transcripts to get set over...Long story really.), but I have actually been INCREDIBLY busy this whole summer. 

I wanted to do a quick share for an activity that you can do on the first day of school and how I used it last year! (I wish I had pictures!!! That is going to be one of my goals this upcoming school year is to take more pictures in my room, of my products.  I think it is actually going to become a classroom job!!!)
So here it is I posted this last year about this time but it works so well.  I have it as a freebie in my TPT store. You can click the picture or HERE to download.  
This is what I did last year and will do again this year on the first day of school.  I took pictures of all of my students on the fi…
